Hi everyone,


I have a HP Pavilion P6-2004nl with Windows 10 running on it. 
A couple of days ago i started up my computer, after a long loading screen it gave me a "Corrupted file" message.
Restarted and i never came further than a black screen after the BIOS with a flickering underscore.


I have two HDD's:
Samsung SSD 120GB (Probably windows 10 is installed on this drive, because when i only plug this one it gives the flickering underscore)
SATA HDD 2GB (Gives me a no bootable device found message when i only plug this in)

Anyhow on both harddisks my bootable USB with the windows 10 files installed on it wont boot. And in the bios it shows my Sandisk USB in the plugged drives but not in the boot-menu. 

I have Aptio 2.11.1210 BIOS with superlimited options and i have no idea how to boot the windows install disk from my BIOS.

Have you run the HP diagnostics?

Have you run these bootable diagnostics?:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html


Depending on how the OS (and previous OS's) was installed, it's possible that the system boots from the HDD and then transfers to the SSD to load Windows.

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
